Treasure Island

- Leaves (thread)


under the dogwood
leaves cover
a cat’s grave

early spring
one leaf still dangles
from the tree

palmistry
dew drops on a leaf
pick a vein

widow’s diary
pressed rose petal
the last leaf

with the rain drops
leaves flutter to the ground
fall showers

fallen leaves
circusing in the grass
merry-go-wind

October shower
leaves in the gutter
disembark

leaves changing colors
across the landscape
season's chameleons

morning rain
under maple leaves
tap my shoulder

leaves ripple
with melodies
cicadas song

    You have such tremendous imagination at work in everything you write. I was not surprised that you could turn each haiku into a small gem of perfection. (smile) (Report) Reply

    I have read these over and over and they all have their own charm. Such a variety of images your readers are totally spoilt. My favorite is fallen leaves, circusing in the grass, merry-go-wind.
    How clever is that! Great work Ben. 10 Karin (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
